Welcome to E-ACT Blackley Academy’s home learning page. Here students will find everything that they need to complete daily learning at home while they are not in the Academy.

At E-ACT Blackley Academy, we believe that no student should be left behind because of Covid-19, so all students who are isolating are able to access the same curriculum as the students who are present. Students should log in to Microsoft Teams and Classdojo where they will find their live learning sessions and pre-recorded lessons. Please find below the link to out Virtual Learning guidance, and a step-by-step guide to using Microsoft Teams and Classdojo.
